for the past few weeks my son (he just turned 2 last month) refuses to eat diner. He will eat breakfast and lunch, but not dinner. It isn't that he doesn't like the food, he just doesn't want to eat and it is near impossible to even keep him up at the dinner table.
Later he will tell me he is hungry around 7pm, but he will still only eat a little bit.
Then between 11pm and 3am he will wake up screaming at the top of his lungs that he is hungry. I have tried give him something to eat and I have tried making him wait til morning. If I make him wait until morning then cries for a long time and once I do get him back to sleep he wakes up every few hours crying because he is hungry.
I have tried no snacks between lunch and diner and that didn't work either.
How do I get him to eat so that he doesn't wake up in the middle of the night?
